It’s so much fun to play with the Totoro cookie cutter/food mold I made, I couldn’t stop playing with it. I made two different dishes with the Totoro food cutter/food shaper, but I’m going to post both of them in here.
Non-bento #36: Totoro egg in the blanket
Created and eaten on 5/5/2011
Whenever I see an egg shaper, I see an “egg in the blanket” using the shaper, so I decided to try it. “Egg in the blanket” has many different names but basically it’s a slice of bread with a hole, cooked on a pan, and an egg cooked inside the hole.
I used the cutter on a piece of bread first, melted butter on a pan, and cooked the bread. I didn’t want to flip it after I put the egg in, so I cooked both sides before cracking the egg into the hole.
Non-bento #37: Totoro cookies
Created and eaten on: 5/6/2011
And I finally made some Totoro hard cookies! I mixed cocoa powder in one batch and matcha (green tea) powder in the other. First I made plain ones to test the baking time, then for the next batch, I made two different kinds of Totoro in two different colors. One is a full Totoro with stomach, nose, and everything, and another one is the “ghost” Totoro.
I’m very happy with the Totoro food cutter/shaper I made. It’s very sturdy and easy to clean. I’m sure I’ll be using it a lot in the future.
I made a set on flickr for the food I made with the Totoro food cutter/shaper, so check it out other food I made with the cutter!
